When she was younger, she and her sister would steal items from department stores and then return them for cash. She did this for some time until she was eventually arrested. The police charged her with grand larceny.
Lohan walked out of a store with a $2,500 necklace. Maybe Lohan was struggling financially as many reports reported, but she still was worth enough to cover the cost of the jewelry if she wanted it so much. Even today, after years of not working, Lohan is worth about half a million dollars.
